THE West Midlands is the newest target area for a growing Internet-based used car dealership which lets you click online to select your model - and then delivers it directly to your door.

Carspring, which is based in London and Berlin, has now launched its online services in Birmingham and Wolverhampton following a nationwide TV campaign during August.

And the company claims every car buyer using its services saves an average of £1,000 compared to buying a car elsewhere.

Maximilian Vollenbroich, Carspring's co-founder, sees the launch at both Birmingham and Wolverhampton as an integral part of the company's drive to bridge an e-commerce gap, yet to be dominated by a universally-known player.

He said the two launches represented a big moment for everyone at the company.

"We've been operating across the UK on very much a beta basis. But, with the launch of our dedicated Birmingham and Wolverhampton sites we're showing the West Midlands that we're here and it's time for the old used car dealerships to up their game or get out of the fast lane;

"Right across the board, every sector is going online. Old conversion barriers relating to issues around trust are being broken down as e-commerce proves its salt as a convenient and trustworthy alternative."

"If I want a book delivered, I go on Amazon. If I want to get my groceries delivered, I go to Ocado. And now, with our official West Midlands launches, we're opening up a genuine online alternative to the people of Birmingham and Wolverhampton to buy their car online.

"So far, we've seen great success in London and the South East, so we think it's about right Birmingham and Wolverhampton get their turn."

The new dedicated sites highlight the company's integrated online offer of flexible finance, a 14-day money-back guarantee and doorstep delivery within the Birmingham and Wolverhampton areas.
